This is a good sight seeing and can be included in your daily tour program. U only need a couple of minutes to spend there not more. If ur guide is well experienced he can easily include it in a one day tour. I recommend Ibrahim from Aydinli Cave hotel who really entertained us all the way during our stay... More

This place is very nice. Of course you have an amazing view. And as the name says, you can see one or two pigeons fly by the skyline. There is also a box filled with bird food. You can drop in 1 lira and can get a handful of bird food to throw to the birds :)

If you like panoramic views, interesting geological formations and a bit of history, then this is for you. Otherwise, stick to the shopping malls at Istiklal (also, you're a sad person).

Tourist trap. Pigeons, yes. Shops! Sure there's a nice view but that's Cappadocia, didn't really get what's supposed to be special about this place.
